While I sometimes struggle with the show each week, this one was a pretty good episode, though a bit slow. Most of the scenes with Ezekiel, Carol, and Jerry were unnecessary, other than the stuff with the charter. They could have just made a comment that they got the bulb. However, I can’t say they weren’t enjoyable. I especially always love seeing Melissa McBride. Jerry of course was also a lot of fun like always, though I’m not sure it was worth risking their life twice for the bulb.
I also worry about Jerry. I love seeing him happy and with a family, but no one has died in a while, and a lot of times once people are settled it spells the end.
As for the storyline with Alpha, I have mixed feelings. Overall, it’s nice for once to see things go as planned for the group, but at the same time, not a whole lot actually happened. As Alpha said, “No conflict.” I am really enjoying Samantha Morton as Alpha though.
